Process Servers offer services to the legal community, services such as filing court paperwork, delivering important court documents and serving writs, warrants, subpoenas or other court directed orders.
Many states require Process Servers to be licensed, and as a prerequisite to obtaining the license, they must post a surety bond as a guarantee that as a licensed process server they will comply with all state regulations, administrative codes and other legal aspects of performing the task of proces serving.
We provide Process Server Surety Bonds for Process Server agencies as well as individuals. A person or business must have a Process Serving Agency license if the person or business assigns, distributes, or delivers process to another for actual service.
The copy of the bond must name the Department of Consumer Affairs as the Certificate Holder (Obligee). Your corporate name, Doing-Business-As (DBA) name (if any), and premises address must be exactly the same on all documents.
